Crew Profile: Kawika Komine
PVS Member Since
HOMETOWN: Kāneʻohe, Oʻahu
Kawika first got involved with PVS when a friend invited him to train for the Worldwide Voyage. On the canoe, his duties include maintaining the drinking water and helping the Medical Officer in the case of an emergency. On the voyage, he looks forward to sharing Hawaiian culture and learning about other cultures and what issues are affecting them. He expects to be challenged by the need to be ready for anything on the canoe and he works hard to make time for training alongside work before he sets sail. When not sailing, he enjoys surfing, mountain biking and spending time with his wife.
